    That's the spring loaded "button" the yellow knob in a series. It engages 4x4 in high range, the other lever is hi and low (red) I got confused the first time I jumped in my series My Series 3 ProjectMy Series 3 Project

    Sorry I re read the question do you mean the transfer case??

    Yep, if you look there are 2 other levers/rods - there's a thin one right next to the gear level and a thicker one further out - these are part of the standard LR transfer case which is grafted to the back of the box.

    Ok, just spent half an hour doing a visual assessment of the top half of the 186. Plan is to use this and the cabstar box in the car if the engine doesnít need major work as it will be quicker and cheaper to move the project along. Rocker cover off, pretty clean in here.

    Head off, and Iím a happy man so far - I suspected the engine had been rebuild at some stage, I was right - .060 pistons in it and good condition bores with no lip and plenty of crosshash visible. Flat top ACL Duralites no less. 👍

    Valves in the head look ok - no obvious recession of any of them - Iíll bung some plugs back in it and do a kero test on the valves - if it doesnít pour through, Iím not even going to touch the head, just clean it up and stick it back on. Some surface rust, not fussed on that.

    Whipped the side covers off - all the lifters popped straight out - no mushrooming and virtually no wear. If the cam looks as good, Iíll use it as is.

    So, pretty pleased here. Will get it I the engine stand and pull the sump and front cover to check bearings and cam gear, then Iíll make a shopping list - looks like I may only need gaskets, seals and a tin of paint to bring this back to life. 👍

    Yeah, I get where youíre coming from, but it wonít happen. This is a stop gap to get it on the road quicker and cheaper so not pulling the pistons or spending money internally. If it was stuffed, Iíd continue on with the LR6 engine. I donít need it to be brand new, itíll get new gaskets and a coat of paint. Itís by far the best second hand red motor Iíve ever seen - Iíve rebuilt about a dozen of these so know then backwards. Cam gear will be replaced if itís a fibre unit, Iíll pull a main and big end bearing to check them, but unless theyíre stuffed which I doubt, theyíll go straight back on, button it up and bolt the whole lot in the chassis. 👍

    I might catch Whitehillbilly then. 😉

    Yeah, heís gone a bit quiet - he has before though and come back swinging. Hopefully Iíll get a few things done here before he comes back so he gets a bit of a scare. 😁
